Chapter Four with Chapter Three explores the environment of shared cultural space that was created by systematically introducing Western music in Japan. Chapter Four focuses on that space within Japan where the environment encompasses the co-existence (however skewed the balance) of Western music and Japanese traditional music (hogaku)— each deeply cultivated, historically grounded complexes from which composers might make creative choices. Chapter Four chronologically traces some choices from the 1920s, considering personal, political, and economic reasons for them. Intersections among performers of Japanese traditional music, performer-composers and composers are bridging internal difference in ways valuable for Japanese culture.
